ENL - English as a New Language

At PS 62 we have approximately 150 students across grades K-5 who receive ENL (English as a New Language) Services.  We have a wonderful team of three teachers and a paraprofessional who provide this instruction in two settings - in the classroom and in an ELL Classroom with a smaller group.  We also have an afterschool program on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 5:00 for students in Grades 3, 4 and 5 who need additional help.
